Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who made controversial remarks regarding the assassination of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, displayed his displeasure and discomfort during the G20 Summit in India. He declined Indian security assistance and even refrained from staying at the Lalit Hotel in New Delhi. Instead, he stayed inside the hotel for two days, reportedly in a state of distress.
What’s noteworthy is that Trudeau did not attend the dinner hosted by the President during the summit, raising questions about his absence. He chose to stay within the hotel premises throughout his visit.
During the summit, the security responsibilities were handled by senior Delhi Police officials. It was revealed that Trudeau stayed in a suite on the 16th floor of The Lalit Hotel. Upon his arrival in Delhi, he refused to accept Indian security and vehicles, claiming that his vehicle, a Land Cruiser, was equipped with Canadian security. He also did not allow the Delhi Police’s Personal Security Officers (PSOs) to accompany him beyond a certain point. The PSOs were tasked with guiding him.
Trudeau left the hotel at 9 AM on September 9th to participate in the G20 Summit but returned to the hotel at 4:30 PM. He did not attend the dinner hosted by the President, and his absence at the dinner became a topic of discussion.
On the morning of September 10th, he left for Rajghat on time and subsequently arrived at the summit venue. After participating in the summit, he returned to the hotel. When he was leaving for the airport at 1 PM, news broke that his aircraft had developed a technical issue. As a result, Trudeau returned to the hotel.
Trudeau remained confined to his suite at the hotel for two days, despite his initial plans to go elsewhere. This hotel also accommodated Japan’s Prime Minister during the summit.
Trudeau’s convoy comprised 16-17 vehicles, with a Scorpio leading the way. Following that, there was an SPG route vehicle, four Innovas, and a G20 vehicle. The convoy included security personnel from Delhi Police, CISF, and other security agencies.
The situation surrounding Trudeau’s visit and his decisions have raised questions and drawn attention during the G20 Summit.
